I find it always a pain to try to go beyond 2 monitors -- I always, 
always, ALWAYS wind up tweaking /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Will KDE or GNome 
ever make it easier to set up 3 or more monitors? 

Not that I mind the tweaks, but it gets old after a while. Meanwhile, 
Windows and Macs have no problems in this arena. 

Another big peeve of mine is having to re-compile nVidia's drivers 
everytime I switch or recompile kernels. I love the fact that nVidia 
supports Linux, but I wish they would do something about this 
distraction for an otherwise fine product. 

Yeah, yeah, I know -- kernel hackers represents a tiny portion of their 
market, but still....!
